My Lunch Break Target Haul

My Lunch Break Target Haul

Whenever I’m having a stressful day at work, I take it out on my credit cards. Nothing relaxes me better than shopping, my endorphines go crazy :) So I did a fun little Target run on my lunch hour today to alleviate some stress. I actually haven’t shopped for beauty stuff at Target since I was in high school (2003 – crazy I know). I can’t BELIEVE how much amazing beauty stuff Target carries. For example I never in a million years would have guessed Napoleon was sold at there lol. I’ve been missin’ out, yo.

Birchbox! September 2011

Birchbox! September 2011

I finally received my Birchbox in the mail yesterday. It’s so frustrating when you live on the west coast and have to wait for stuff to ship from the east coast! It takes soooo long. And Birchbox unfortunately uses Streamlite, which is the worst shipping service EVER. If USPS takes 3 days to ship a package, Streamlite will take 9 days. I hate them if you couldn’t tell lol.

But annnnyways.. moving on :) This is Birchbox’s one year anniversay box. It was highly anticipated (as usual) and I like almost everything I received, but I admit it was a little underwhelming for an anniversary edition. I think Birchbox needs to either throw in a full size bonus item or more deluxe sized items soon to keep subscribers happy. I’m really not thrilled about getting a vial of perfume considering you can get free perfume samples all over the place.

They have a few amazing staples in their permanent line, such as the Camoflauge Concealer and Sheer Envy Primer.

Here are a couple products from their new fall collection: World Balmination tinted lip balm in Miss Independent and Stay In Line eyeliner in Santorini.

My ‘August Naturals’ VoxBox from Influenster!

I am so happy I found Influenster LOL. I don’t remember how I stumbled across their website, but the beauty Gods were looking out for me that day. I’ve done a couple blog posts about these VoxBoxes before, but here is the basic gist: You Join Influenster.com and if you qualify for their current “VoxBox” then they send it to you, for FREE, to try and review. The VoxBoxes contain full-size products all based around a certain theme.  This box has a “natural” theme and contains products with green and organic ingredients.
